Clerk/Carrier (Current Employee), Webster, TXJuly 23, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: benefits, hours, environment
Im considered a full time employee but we are in whats called a freeze. If you were hired while the freeze was in place your benefits and job promotions are too. So no room for promotion or raise until the freeze is gone. Every route is considered 8 hours. I do my route plus sometimes half of another in 8 hours. Ill be the only one doing it too. As – more... of now i havent had a day off in 2 month because they look at why pay someone who makes more money overtime, when we can pay someone 17/hr to do it. – less

SSDA (Former Employee), Mulga, ALJuly 23, 2014
Pros: excellent pay and benefits
Cons: no work/life balance
Work/life balance is non-existent. It is worse now as many employees are required to work 7 days a week.

Constant talk of offices being closed and your job being eliminated.

Great Pay and many hours to work.
Mail Handler Assistant (Former Employee), El Paso, TexasJuly 23, 2014
Pros: great pay, long hours, helpful co-workers
Cons: no time off rarely, bad management, horrible home life.
If you like to work and want to have no life at home whatsoever then you'll like this job. It really just depends on what position you have and in what area you live in. I worked in El Paso, Texas and was working 12 hours everyday with 4 days off in a month. Management is the worst, because they have no interaction with each other and it's just dog – more... eat dog. I'm sure this isn't the case in every location I'm sure. If you can just do your job and work hard you'll be fine. – less

productive and not being micro manage
Rural Carrier Associate (Former Employee), Wappingers Falls, NYJuly 22, 2014
Pros: finish early you go home and be paid the lotted time for route
Cons: bad weather, no benefits, and have to wait for a route to open to be perm.
A typical day is rack all the morning mail for the route you are doing.Then load the postal truck and deliver the mail. When coming back rack the afternoon mail and go home.I have learned to be a safer driver and time management. My co-workers keep to them selves. The management don't bother you and let you do your work. The hardest part of the job – more... is driving in bad weather. The enjoyable part of the job is meeting the people you deliver to. – less

Accountant/Economist (Current Employee), Washington, D.C.July 22, 2014
Pros: the ability to telecommute
Cons: people's inability to want to work
A typical day at work is very busy. There is hardly enough time to catch my breath; however, I enjoy a fast paced environment.
My greatest challenge and reward was learning to model International Customer Mailings.
My co-workers are very entertaining
The hardest part of my job is the commute. I spend 5 hrs out of my day traveling to and from my job. – more... A closer proximity is my desire
The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people – less

Classic Factory Work
Operations & Customer Service (Current Employee), Chattanooga, TNJuly 19, 2014
The challenge is working with a huge dysfunctional family in a large plant setting. It has it moments of fun, and many moments of diplomatic creativity. The issue is, it no longer fills any sense of challenge. I am eager to move into an optimistic, progressive environment. I want to put my talents to use in an optimistic, future envisioning position.

Rural Carrier Associate (Former Employee), Omaha, NEJuly 19, 2014
the hardest part of this position, for which I can only testify to my particular station, the isolation from the rest of the crew. everyone is given a route to do, and is expected to do it without incident. regardless of training or experience. Management has their own way of doing things, which seem disconnected from the ground crew, and was usually – more... unhelpful and inefficient. – less

Great place to work and retire from.
Bulk Mail Technician (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAJuly 18, 2014
Pros: great benefits and pay
Cons: having to some week-ends, (mandatory)
A typical day at work was dealing with the public in a customer service setting.

I learned how to listen and be patient.

My co-workers all worked together for one common goal. Customer satisfaction.

The hardest part of the job was inclement weather because of sometimes having to work on a dock.

The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new – more... people and helping them prepare their mailings. – less

RCA (Current Employee), Unionville, VAJuly 17, 2014
Pros: high paying job and i work with a great group of people.
Cons: only part-time so i recieve no benefits at this time.
Time goes by very fast because it's actually a fun job. Having employees that get along so well helps too. A typical day includes unloading flats, letters, and parcels to the right areas then sorting. The carriers case the mail and deliver to the correct addresses.
